Posted on: February 21st, 2009 by mailsent No Comments

This week we learned of the tragic and untimely death of Rob Shields. Rob will be best known to cyclists who attended our Thursday evening runs. He was a quiet, thoughtful, and reflective person and very passionate about his cycling. He was a keen Audax rider, achieving Super Randonneur in 2007, and was a very active and much loved member of the cycling forum yacf.


Rob’s funeral will be held at Cheltenham Cemetery & Crematorium, Bouncers Lane, Cheltenham, GL52 5JT, on Tuesday 24th Feb 1:00pm. 

We have been in contact with his mother and she would very much like for everyone who knew Rob, and are able to attend his funeral, to come along.  Refreshments afterwards will be at the Cotswold Grange Hotel, Pittville Circus Road.
Rob’s family would love to meet the people he shared his life with, and hope you can attend. Please feel free to wear what ever you are comfortable in.

 We will always remember Rob’s smiling face and joyful personality.
